Food, fun, music, and drinks all in a family friendly atmosphere out doors at Q Casino! I’m of course talking about the Backwaters Stage Summer Concert Series. Over the past few years huge bands have come through the area to entertain the Tri-States and this year is no different.

Already on the bill for this years’ series is legendary rockers Tesla on Friday, June 17th. This show was a rescheduled event and all purchased tickets for the previously listed show will be automatically transferred to the new show date. So, if you already bought tickets your set to go.

Come see TESLA’s legacy live on in Dubuque as they continue to record and sellout venues all over the world. TESLA truly is a celebration of the greatest spirits of rock and roll; their bluesy, soulful sound is strongly embedded in the roots of authentic 1970s rock and roll. From “Signs,” to “Love Song;” from “Hang Tough” to “Mama’s Fool;” it’s time for a great night of classic rock in Dubuque fit for everyone on June 17th.


Q Casino is now preparing to release their full line-up or at least announcing a new act for the Backwaters Stage summer concert series as a new Facebook post teases;
